Prince of Wales Hotel – Waterton Park, Alberta

Prince of Wales Hotel Waterton Park

Overlooking Upper Waterton Lake, near the Canada-United States border, the Swiss-chalet style Prince of Wales Hotel was built to lure American tourists north of the border during the prohibition era. Named in a transparent attempt the Prince of Wales to entice him to stay in the hotel during the Royals 1927 Canadian tour (which he did not), the hotel was designated a National Historic Site of Canada by the Canadian government in 1995.
